PRESS RELEASE: DotPhoto's Pictavision is the leading standard for viewing & sharing photos on cell phones
Signs Deals with Clubphoto, Fotki, Webshots, & Picturetrail Sites to Provide Wireless Photo Access for Pictavision-Enabled Cell Phones
West Trenton, NJ - February 26, 2004 - dotPhoto, Inc. (www.dotphoto.com), a leading photo-sharing and digital photography web site, announced today, that it has signed deals with Clubphoto, Fotki, Webshots, and Picturetrail to provide wireless photo access for Pictavision-enabled mobile phones. DotPhoto's Pictavision photo sharing application gives wireless customers the ability to view and share personal photos in their online albums right from their mobile phone. The application also allows customers to download photos stored in their accounts as mobile wallpaper.
Pictavision's technology gives customers the best wireless photo experience while taking up very little of their phone's memory. This gives users features such as rapid photo download, full screen photo viewing, local photo storage, photo email and still leaves room to load other data services on their phone.
Clubphoto, Fotki, Webshots and Picturetrail chose dotPhoto as a development partner to expand their potential client base to wireless carriers and subscribers. The updated version of Pictavision enables these sites to offer a more robust set of photo sharing features to their customers including the ability to access their photos wirelessly at anytime.
"Pictavision is already consumer's preferred way to view their digital photos on all mobile phones for which it is available," says Glenn Paul, President of dotPhoto. "By partnering with Clubphoto, Fotki, Webshots, and Picturetrail, dotPhoto's Pictavision enables millions of additional consumers to customize their cell phones with photo wallpaper as well as view and share their photos on the go. Moreover, our new relationships further solidify Pictavision as the leading standard for viewing photos on cell phones."
"dotPhoto's proven success with Pictavision and their ability to develop consumer-friendly applications convinced us that theirs was the best solution," says Darren Schiff, President of Clubphoto. "Plus, allowing consumers to make impulse purchases by subscribing directly from their mobile phone is another benefit to using the Pictavision platform."
